The Build Back Better Awards have recognised our collective action with Silent Design and Casambi Technologies that gave new life to 300m of linear lighting at The Building Crafts College in Stratford.

The Reused Cat A lighting exercise undertaken by Morgan Lovell at Haleon has won Gold and Green Awards at the Build Back Better Awards in the Lighting Category.

After being rescued from going to waste during a CAT A fit out in London, 300 metres of luminaires were delivered to Silent Design’s facility in Marlow, where 3-metre runs of linear LED lights were made into shorter 1,500mm units to fit the Building Crafts College building. Additionally, downlights were transformed from fluorescent to LED versions.

The installation didn’t just bring energy-efficient lighting to the college, but a cutting-edge control system. Utilising Casambi Technologies’ ingenuity, these lights are presence-controlled and dim in response to light levels via a wireless, unobtrusive Bluetooth-mesh based creation.

Not stopping there, the commitment to sustainability extends to the packaging. Floor tiles from a job in Watford were repurposed as wrapping material for the lights during transportation. This exemplifies a comprehensive approach to reusing resources efficiently and is another reason why the Build Back Better Awards have recognised this collaborative effort towards greener approaches within the workplace.
